Re: Dpdt Relay

I am not sure of your version, but in the Power Pro Version there is an Energize Coil and  separate contacts that you can use to create any configuration of relay that you need. Look under ELECTRO_MECHANICAL>COIL_RELAY and you should find them there if they are in your version.

Other than that, you might be able to find a spice model and create one, but you would lose the animations of the coils and contacts.

Re: Dpdt Relay

I forgot to mention that under the category I mentioned above there are a bunch of other ones already "pre-made" that may work for you.

Re: Dpdt Relay

I'm used that , the energize relay, but how can i had a footprint to export the circuit to ultiboard?!

The footprint i want to had, already exists in ultiboard...

Re: Dpdt Relay

I see what your saying about the energize coil and contacts. What can be done is a footprint assigned to them from the spreadsheet. The only problem is that because Multisim treats the coil and contacts as separate components you would have to assign a 2 pin footprint to each section. The other problem is that when you transfer this to Ultiboard they appear as separate parts with their own footprint.

I have tried various way to get this into one footprint, but I was unsuccessful. If you have the other coils availabel to you you can use those and assign a footprint to them.

I hope some of this helps

Re: Dpdt Relay

I too am trying to merge separate relay components into a single footprint (to create a 2 coil latcher).  The footprint is even available in Ultiboard (REL_SDSTQ2L2) I just can’t find any matching schematic symbol. 
Since the original post was made 4 years ago, I was wondering if it’s possible to do this in in the most recent versions of Multisim/Ultiboard (12)?

Re: Dpdt Relay

Can you 'draw' the schematic with separate symbols (or send a basic drawing) and I can take a look at any existing symbols or the possible creation of a single component...
